Judging by his performance: Tough one between Wall Street & Falling Down, IMO

While he has made many a good film, why is The American President not on that poll? I love that movie, and I think it's easily one of his finest works. Though he is great in most of his films.

"Fatal Attraction." Not only because it touched a nerve in the zeitgeist, and became a cultural phenomenon, but also because it's a helluva fine suspense drama.

My choice isn't so much a Michael Douglas movie as it is an ensemble movie, but I still feel that it is his best performance to date--Traffic.

I think Wall Street is his best performance but Romancing the Stone is my favorite film.

You know what?

None of those movies are really very good. I think MD is a bit overrated in that he hasn't stared in a single film that I would put in my personal top 100...or even 200.

Falling Down - As much of a serious movie it is, it has halarious moments. We need a SE of this ASAP.
